25 CLUB NEWSLETTER No 8, March 1 2020

1) TWO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION

The eighth home game of the competition – Llandovery v Merthyr – saw two winners. The first Llandovery try was scored by No 13 Ktistian Jones and earned MARTIN REES £50.

The second try, scored by scrum half Lee Rees won ROB HUNT a further £50.

The next round will take place this Saturday March 7 when Swansea are the visitors to Church Bank for an early kick off (2 00 pm)

2) BETTING ODDS

Bookmakers gave Merthyr a + 4 handicap start on Saturday so those who backed Llandovery on the handicap lost out narrowly

Bookmakers Paddy Power and Betfair Sportsbook, are offering both match and handicap odds on all Indigo Premiership games.

3) 10% DISCOUNT

NEW!

Both the West End Cafe and Oz’s now offer all 25 Club members a discount of 10% on food and beverage purchased at the cafe. Claim your 10% on production of your membership card.

Many thanks to both Mark Vince and Ismail Ozdemir for their support of the Club
